Housing Repair Organization Receives $8K Grant to Benefit Mississippi Residents
Many elderly residents in the Mississippi Delta are without the financial means to address their aging homes’ inevitable wear and tear. An $8,000 Partnership Grant Program (PGP) award to Delta Grace will help resolve some of the area’s most dire cases. The nonprofit, faith-based organization matches mission teams with people in need of home repairs and hosted 25 teams of 377 mission workers and worked on 47 projects this year alone.
Thursday's Take: Taste of Indianola a Recipe for Great Things to Come
Last October, I was just two months on the job in Indianola, so I was enjoying a lot of my “firsts” in the community. One thing that I greatly enjoyed was Community Bank’s Taste of Indianola event. This is real plus for the community, and it supports two missions in the county that are vital to the well being of so many citizens.

why we're here
we provide essential home repairs to those most in need
The Mississippi Delta is one of the poorest areas in the United States — often described as ‘a third world country in the heart of America.’ Historically, the region has remained entrenched in deep poverty. Our founders saw that need and were moved to action.
In 2013, they founded Delta Grace, a non-profit, multi-denominational, faith-based organization that matches mission teams with those in need of home repairs.
Since its founding, Delta Grace has hosted over 2,000 missioners and, with their help, has repaired over 150 homes and shared God’s grace with hundreds of Delta residents.
Word about our work has spread all over the country. Today, we have more homes awaiting repairs than ever before.
Is to share God’s grace by using our hands and feet to do His work
Is to provide safe, sanitary, and secure housing for the elderly, disabled, and others who do not have the means to have adequate living conditions in the Delta
Is that volunteers will transform the lives of those they serve and, in turn, have their own lives transformed
